TripAdvisor, which has become one of the top travel review web sites in the world, has ranked Ocean City third on its vacation rentals list for Labor Day weekend travelers.
“It’s great to see Ocean City get such recognition on TripAdvisor with our moderately priced options for guests and free events,” said Melanie Pursel, executive director of the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce. “Once we attract new people to Ocean City, they try it out and get hooked.”
The list was compiled from the number of vacation rental bookings and inquiries on TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals, which lists more than 720,000 vacation rentals from around the world.
“Vacation rentals have definitely been hot, with many doing mini-weeks such as a Thursday to Sunday,” Pursel said. “It’s become a trend since not everyone can stay a whole week. We are finding the nature of families having kid activities and it’s hard to get away.”
